Northern Border, Part 2
A thousand agents cannot possibly watch 4,000 miles of US / Canadian
border. What makes it all even worse is that even U.S. Border
Patrol Agents need to sleep so less than a third of the 1,000
are on duty at any one moment. The real number is secret but a
safe guess qould be that fewer than 250 agents are on-duty defending
us from the dozens of known terrorist cells operating in Canada.
Of the 22 U.S. Border Patrol Sectors, only seven are considered
absolutely critical to a secure America.
You can get the book on the right to scare yourself.
The Detroit Sector for instance, is responsible
for 804 miles of total wilderness between Michigan and Canada.
The Detroit Sector is home not just to wilderness but to the city
of Detroit which has the largest Muslim population anywhere outside
of the Middle East. With a Muslim population exceeding 150,000,
Detroit's City Fathers are amending the city noise ordinance so
that mosques might use loudspeakers for the call to prayer.
According federal records and Chief Patrol Agent
Dan Geoghegan, the Detroit Sector doubled its pre-9/11 staff.
The number of Border Patrol Agents now standing between Muslim
communities with known terrorist cells operating on both sides
of the border........ is 76.
The Detroit Sector's agents patrol 806 miles of
Great Lakes coastline and use boats, SUVs, and even snowmobiles.
Considering shift work, days off, vacations, and sick leave, at
any given time there are probably fewer than 10 agents guarding
America from the known terrorist cells in Canada who are just
waiting for their opportnity to attack.
If Montreal resident Ahmed Ressam, the Algerian-born
Al-Qaida operative who was caught by vigilant U.S. border inspectors,
had simply walked across the Canadian border through the woods
near Detroit, his bombs would have brought untold death and destruction
to his planned target, LAX, and possibly killed more people than
were killed on 9/11.You can click on the image below and ask your
